I was 30 weeks pregnant and had just received news from my doctor that I had gestational diabetes! I went into a bit of a tail spin. I was healthy. Had an exceptional diet. Exercised 5 x per week. Not overweight. But I still had gestational diabetes!!
I didn’t know quite how to manage it. All of the usual “don’t drink any more soft drinks or McDonalds” didn’t apply to me. I eat home-cooked, unprocessed, mostly vegetable diet. So I called Kate. She was fantastic. She gave me detailed recipes that I could cook for the whole family plus easily applied dietary modifications to help manage my blood glucose levels.
I was really grateful for her expertise and my diabetes was managed. No sugar spikes in my bloods, my diabetes was managed through diet only, and my baby was born healthy. Thank you Kate!
I went to see Kate because I needed some help with losing weight. I found her to be very knowledgeable, full of practical tips and recipes and very empathetic. She helped me to tweak my diet so it was healthier and more satisfying. She also helped me to get some balance and perspective, which is what I needed.
If you’re struggling to lose weight or feeling lethargic or just confused by what actually constitutes good nutrition, then go and see Kate.
I came to Kate having tried everything else — diets, exercises and so on — and partly because I was too busy to plan and cook, I rapidly fell by the wayside. The industrial-style alternatives were full of salt and carbs and not suited to my way of eating.
The wonderful thing about Kate is that she uniquely combines nutrition expertise with personalised preparation of the most delicious and balanced meals ever. What a joy and relief to pick up her yummy creations and know that you will not be hungry, not have poor nutrition, not be tired from shopping and cooking and planning, and not bored with your daily meals. In my book, she’s a star!
PS. I’ve already lost more than 4kg – painlessly – and I’m well on the way to re-educating my palate.
I saw Kate because I wanted to reduce my body fat %. She helped me to understand more about food groups and educated me about what to eat and why – the most important part! I managed to reach my goal and feel fantastic. I will be forever grateful to Kate!
I thoroughly enjoyed doing the 12-week personalised weight-loss program with Kate Barnes.
I attained a lot of helpful information about nutrition, health and wellbeing. I can honestly say it changed my life for the better and I now eat the right portions and food types for my body. My health has improved, I have more energy and the program changed my perception of food in a positive way.
I am grateful for the experience and I would highly recommend Nutrition Coach.
Kate is a nutritionist well versed in her craft and also a passionate practitioner who I am lucky to have found.
Between my first session to the second session, partially following Kate’s advice (need to be a better patient), I have increased muscle mass and reduced visceral fat. I have also reduced my metabolic age by three years. I am planning to reduce my three month fasting sugar level from 6.5 to less than 6 without increasing medicine dosage in three months, and also reduce my metabolic age by another three years.
Kate is fun to work with and has a pragmatic, strategic approach to nutrition related issues. When I follow her suggestions I see remarkable increase in my energy level, eat more happily and yet reduce weight.
